The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Purple again - Jacarandas

The weather has been a little weird this year with just a bit more rain than the last couple of years.  It is the dry season and they do mean dry.  And just when things are nice and dry and the countryside is all brown, there appear these wonderful bursts of purple that splash up everywhere - the jacaranda trees.

They seem to bloom over a two or three month period.  OK, I forget who this is.  I will have to go back.... that's OK, he is right next to La Güerita so maybe I'll get that empanada.

This statue of Jose Pedro Mendez across the street seems to be saying, "Hey, you've got yours.  Where are mine?"
